    About The Work

    Tan painted this work during the COVID-19 home quarantine. Ginseng, with its humble looking root, is widely used for its health benefits in Asia. Ginseng also produces beautiful flowers. To Tan, the root and flower occupy two invisibly connected spaces. A pair of human hands are offering a Ginseng plant as an imaginary gift, showing both the alluring flower and the unattract yet very powerful root. As in all his work, Tan utilizes tangible media and forms to explore tensions between two “opposing” spaces and confrontational forces. By spraying layers of diluted Acrylic paint onto the canvas to create a smooth and dramatic scene, Tan's sensitive attention to the visible and the fictional is both romantic and comical.
